Default How's this for a sandwich that utilizes Spam

Apparently a lot of people in Portland, Oregon love foot carts and lunch wagons, to the point where they're calling it "food cart culture". I was looking at an article somewhere, which lead me to another, which lead me to Food Carts Portland.

There's a cart called Brunch Box and they have something called an OMG! Burger, a/k/a The Redonkadonk:


I couldn't find a photo of it (which may or may not be fortunate), but if you want a "basic" version of this without the egg, ham, bacon, and Spam, here you go:


Forget your health, this is an instant heart attack party. I have not tried something like this yet, but if you're an avid walker or bike rider, you could burn this off in a few hours. Maybe.

Portland is only about 4 hours away, so if I make it down there before the end of summer, I'll have to consider it.

what a coincidence. yesterday afternoon, eric and i were at the monster safeway complex on kapahulu avenue to watch the taping of the burgers on the edge burger genius contest. the taping was a food drive for the food bank plus they had a about fifteen MINIs on site since MINI of Hawaii was a sponsor and it was only a roll down the hill for us.

doris gilbert's "bento burger" incorporates spam:

Burger Name: Bento Burger
Beef: Ground Chuck
Cheese: Swiss
Sauce: Teriyaki
Toppings: Fried egg, spam, manoa lettuce

unfortunately, her burger, if i am not mistaken, was not one of the top four finalists. i wonder if being driven to the show site in a MINI cooper on tv was enough of a consolation prize. she had a pretty wide-grinned smile when she was in the car....

The teriyaki takes it over the top too. But yeah, a mini Cooper would be nice.

I've never heard of Burgers On The Edge before. I just placed a link to it in my food blog. Normally if I have to resort to a burger when I'm back home, it's:

W&M
Tsukenjo
maybe Zippy's

A burger made with wagyu beef sounds really good. Is it really good?

it is definitely good, but also definitely pricier than W&M.

I saw the menu and was like "ooh" but if it's of quality, it would be worth it.

As a war baby I was brought up on Spam (Specially processed artificial meat) Invented in Birkenhead just across the Mersey from where I now live.
At this time Popeye cartoons were pushing spinache,,,,,, Yukkky,,,, I have never touched either since. (Yet my elder brother still loves Spam fritters.)

Is your version of Spam different from the well-known pork shoulder blend?
